The Bay is a horror film that takes place in a small seaside community in Maryland. And while that sounds lovely and relaxing, it is anything but. The film follows the residents of the town as they become the unfortunate hosts of a waterborne parasite, something no one has seen before.

The mutation controls the minds and bodies of the townspeople. So, the town pretty much turns into a community of zombies. Are you interested to see what happens to the town and the people? We don’t blame you; it sounds like a crazy plotline. The film is available on Hulu.
